NORMAN, Okla.
– Ole Miss men’s golfers Noah West and Ben Wolcott were named to the Division I Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar team by the Golf Coaches Association of America, the organization announced Wednesday. Both seniors collected the accolade for the second consecutive year.

To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50-percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke-average under 76.0 and maintain a minimum cumulative career grade-point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.

A four-year letterman for the Rebels, West graduated in May with a pair of bachelor degrees. The Belden, Mississippi, native maintained a 3.60 grade point average throughout his time in Oxford as a double major in managerial finance and real estate. Throughout the 2016-17 academic year, West posted a 3.66 GPA to earn a spot on the All-America Scholar team for the second straight season.

On the course, West completed his Ole Miss career with a 73.8 stroke average over 120 rounds. As a senior this past season, he posted three top-10 finishes to help the Rebels emerge victorious in each of those tournaments. West placed fourth at the Warrior Princeville Makai Intercollegiate in Hawaii (Oct. 30-Nov. 1, 2016) after shooting a three-round total of 207 (68-70-69). He ended his final year as a Rebel with a 73.4 stroke average.

Holding a 3.24 cumulative GPA, Wolcott is taking his final classes this summer. He is on his way to earning his bachelor’s degree in general studies next month. Wolcott claimed his second All-America Scholar honor with a 3.24 GPA this past year.


 

 

Wolcott was another senior Rebel that contributed throughout his four years on campus. The Dickson, Tennessee, native played in 137 rounds and finished his career with a 72.6 stroke average. Wolcott posted his lowest season stroke average as a senior (71.1) to help lead Ole Miss to its first NCAA Championship appearance since 2001. He finished top five in five tournaments, which includes a pair of individual victories. Recording his first career victory with a 9-under 207 (70-70-67), Wolcott led the Rebels to the team tournament title at the Lamkin San Diego Classic (March 13-14). Two weeks later, he earned medalist honors for the second consecutive tournament; with three rounds in the 60s (67-68-69), Wolcott posted a career-low total of 204 through 54 holes to win the Hootie at Bulls Bay (March 27-28).
